This ram is better. runs at 1600 on lower voltage and with lower latency. It's cheaper, too. m 0 l bonniehandi October 25, 2010 1:31:41 AM I already have a case, that's why I didn't mention it. It is a CM690II. What do you think of this harddrive. It is the same price as Samsung spinpoint f3 1tb, except bigger. Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1500GB 1.5TB SATA2 7200RPM 32MB Cache NCQ Hard Drive OEM Also, another question, is 700W enough? Thanks! m 0 l bonniehandi October 25, 2010 1:35:56 AM @mortonww Corsair XMS3 TR3X6G1333C9 6GB is only $85 at my retail store. I don't think I am willing to spend double for the improvement. Unless I am missing something. m 0 l mortonww October 25, 2010 1:59:29 AM oh wow. Nevermind, then. Also, you don't want the 7200.11 drives from Seagate. I don't know the specifics, but a lot of people had problems with those drives. If you want a Seagate, 7200.12s are better. m 0 l bonniehandi October 25, 2010 2:32:27 AM Alright. I think I have everything I need. Thanks a lot everyone. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources New PC Build, Compatibility check please.
